** Also, it is never stated that all human children know animals can talk. It’s possible that only certain children are aware of it (specifically the ones who have befriended talking animals). This seems to at least be the case in Charlotte’s Web. Fern is apparently the only human character (adult or child) who understands the animals’ speech (besides Charlotte’s written messages in her web).

*** In what world would they have allowed Penny to keep the diamond? It is an extremely valuable object of historical importance (remember it even has a name- the Devil's Eye; there must be lots of legend and history behind it). The one logical place where one thing would end would be the museum- and even if Penny had considered keeping it (which she wouldn´t because for starters, she never had a personal interest in the diamond), surely Bernard and Bianca would've advised against it, knowing it could get her in trouble. You could even argue that she would be at risk of being adopted by materialistic opportunists rather than truly loving parents if she had been known or suspected to still posess the diamond.

**Note however that Kate (I think) only loses her ability to communicate with Pal as she gains the ability to communicate with older people. Cody and Penny both are older than Kate and they can clearly speak to both animals and other humans. I would think that if as adults they remember having talking animals as friends (and don’t dismiss those memories as childhood fantasies) they should not be surprised if they happen to meet talking animals again as adults; but since we never see them as adults it’s hard to be certain.

* ''Disney/TheRescuers'': Anybody noticed how similar this movie is to ''Film/TheGoonies''?

* So [=McLeach=] is a wanted man, as evidenced by the WANTED poster we see at the beginning. Given that his truck leaves a trail a blind imbecile could follow, you'd think he'd be easier to find.
** Who says he's the only one with that kind of truck? It could easily be a common model that a lot of people living in the outback have. Plus, I got the impression that they live in quite a sparsely populated area. While [=McLeach=] isn't book smart, he's street-smart enough to know to poach in areas that the Park Rangers usually don't look. (The sad thing is, that's actually TruthInTelevision...Park Rangers have ''other'' duties besides looking out for poachers, and there likely aren't enough to be constantly on the lookout for [=McLeach=]. That and park rangers aren't the police.)



* There's a strange moment towards the end of ''Down Under'', when Bernard gets [=McCleach's=] truck shut off, and steals the keys. [=McCleach=] starts looking for the keys, while Bernard hides behind the pedal. Bernard then looks down at something on the floor of the truck, then has this look on his face like he just got an idea, and then.... we just see him jumping out of the truck with the keys, and running into Joanna. What was that all about?
** Presumably, he saw a way out of the truck, taking the keys with him to hinder [=McLeach=] further; realistically, he would look in the truck until he had exhausted every conceivable place they could have fallen into before it occurred to him that they may not be in the truck anymore. That and [=McLeach=] isn't very smart to begin with.
* About Croc Falls...is that water flowing ''uphill'' before it gets to the crest of it and goes down to the river?
** It's possible for water to be appearing to flow uphill depending on the grade of the area. Alternately, even if there is a slight uphill portion in the rivier, the current of the river is probably strong enough to overcome it (especially considering there's a huge honking waterfall at the end).



* A website cataloging various Disney mistakes and plotholes brought up a good point: [=McCleach=] keeps boasting that Marahute will make him rich, but he already got Marahute's mate; why didn't he get rich from THAT bird?
** Mcleach specifically wants her ''eggs'', [[CaptainObvious which male eagles can't lay.]]
*** If he wanted the eggs, he would have told Joanna to bring them back up as opposed to eating them. And don't try and tell me she couldn't, she could lift the rocks they were replaced with easy enough.

** She's a little kid, she obviously [[WorthlessYellowRocks doesn't give a crap about that kind of stuff the way adults do]].

* Why was the diamond given to a museum? If anything it seems like ''Penny'' should be able to keep it after all she went through because of it.

** Well in the Peter in Kesgenton gardens (book set before Peter and Wendy, ie Peter Pan) and in the real Mary Poppins book. It seems like we can talk to birds/animals at birth but that ability disappears when one is older. It's been lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' between Kate and Pal.

** Fear is often an irrational, illogical emotion. For instance, someone who likes to do extreme dangerous sports could still freak out at the mere sight of any harmless spider. Also, RuleOfFunny. Her EekAMouse scene is one of the funniest part of the movie.
